Video: Devin Supertramp’s ‘Sky Racers’

Devin Super Tramp (a.k.a. Devin Graham) is quite the extreme film maker. I first noticed him when he did the “world’s largest rope swing.” He consistently posts fun, exciting videos. He has a great eye and makes smart use of GoPro-style cameras. “As far as one-man viral-video auteurs go, Graham is in a league of his own, and Corporate America has taken notice. Graham now gets paid tens of thousands of dollars on top of production costs to place products, from Ford to Kellogg’s to Mountain Dew, in his videos. Kevin Allocca, head of culture and trends at YouTube, says Graham is emblematic ‘of a big change that’s happened in the gatekeeping system of media. A guy like Devin can set up shop in a place like Utah and become a mogul in the entertainment space without needing a giant studio,’ ” explains an article in the March 2014 Outside magazine.

He latest, shot in Dubai, is a fun romp through the air.

Two thumbs way up!

“It’s visionary. It’s truly on the edge of what we could call climbing,” says Arc’Teryx athlete Jesse Huey. “You can train for the Karakoram, for Alaska, but nothing can prepare you for this.” This winter, Huey and his team of elite alpine climbers will journey to the roof of the world. When darkness falls, there will be light. Happy Holidays.
